Travel Guide
Vianden featuring flowers, a small town or village and a river or creek

Visit the mediaeval castle, go shopping in nearby Luxemburg and enjoy the beautiful nature.

Vianden is a small city in the Luxembourg Ardennes on the banks of the river Our near the German border. Vianden has an old city centre with mediaeval streets and a castle. There are also plenty of hiking and cycling routes that offer easy access to the unspoilt nature that surrounds the city.

Vianden's roman fort served as the Seat of the Counts of Vianden in the Middle Ages. Back then, the city was surrounded by a wall with five gates. The wall was almost completely demolished in the 17th century.

Vianden is very popular among tourists and local residents alike. Its main point of interest is the big mediaeval castle, Château de Vianden, which you can reach on foot by walking up the hill from the city centre or by taking the chair lift up to 440 metres. Once at the top, you can admire a number of the castle's differently furnished rooms.

The Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Vianden is a short walk from the castle and a great place to learn more about the city's history. Active holidaymakers will enjoy ‘Tree Climber’ park, perfect if you want to alternate sightseeing with a challenging course. Vianden is in the middle of the Ardennes, which couldn’t be a more perfect location for nature lovers. Shoppers can enjoy a day out in the nearby city of Luxemburg.

Because Vianden is in the Ardennes, hiking, horse riding, cycling and mountain bike trails are literally on your doorstep. You can also go skydiving or hot-air ballooning.

Vianden is in Luxemburg, close to the German border. You can fly to Luxembourg from London City and take a train to Vianden. Alternatively, you can take the Eurostar from St Pancras and change trains in Paris and Luxembourg. If you’re planning on driving, you can take the ferry from Dover to Calais and the E40 through Belgium or the E42 through France.

Vianden is the perfect holiday destination if you want to explore Luxemburg from a quiet little city surrounded by stunning nature

Hot time in the room
"We were there during the heat wave in late June 2019. Room was way to hot, made worse by the heat coming through the wall from the Cheney from the pizza oven below our unit. Made the room even hotter then normal."
